Question for STT peeps
Good day all,
Need help here, I'm in STX and I love it here been here 4 years, I love the life in the laid back lane, open spaces and just the lifestyle. Got a possibility on as job transfer to STT, double the money but don't know. I've done stints of work over there for a few week at a time. But I'm confused.
Guess it depends where you're working and lifestyle you want.
If it's double the money you're being paid now, you might want to buckle up and suffer the "trails and tribulations" of living in STT as those from STX seems to believe.
Rentals are more expensive here than there but I'm sure you can find nice accommodations in your budget.
Northside is nice and quiet and laid back. Just depends where you work for the commute.
Be a bit more specific in your question.
If you enjoy sailing there's lots of nearby islands here and BVI for day sails or weekends away.
You can take your car on barge over to STJ for the day to explore.
Great beaches, lots of bars and restaurants, open Mic nights and live music at many places if that's what you like. There are various events thru out the year and Richold Center has great acts coming in during the year. Tillets and Pistarckle Theather often has events during the year. There are art shows at various galleries.
There's lots to do, if you wish or nothing, if that's what you wish.
AandA2 might be able to give you perspective as they just moved to STX a couple months ago. I believe A was having STT withdrawal symptoms.
True, Guess I didn't go there. For those of you that have lived in both. Pros vs cons. I know I'm painting with a broad brush here.
If you like the laid back lifestyle and the open lanes here - u will not like STT.
That said I want to go home!! Lmao. Miss STT so bad it's palpable.

On this recent thread:
both Compass Point and Independent Boatyard are quoted by dock residents at $16 a ft/mo.
Maybe your $1.74 ft quote is if you pay by the day?? Is it a trimaran or wide catamaran?
I do know the 35'Pearson that I often sail is in Independent Docks for about $600 mo. and has been docked there for years and that The vessel mentioned by Rick G in the thread on TTOL is about a 40' Beneteau.
Depends on your draft.
There's another Marina that was rebuilding their docks on east end but they ran into some issues and don't know if they ever finished. I don't often get out to east end. Sorry, can't remember the name but after Independent Boat Yard and before Saga Haven. There are a couple places with docks in Benner Bay.
Can't remember the charter company's name in Frenchtown but they have a couple liveaboards on their docks.
Might be worth your while to fly over and check them out.
